    More bad news

    My wife lost her uncle to cancer in May of this year, then her Dad to cancer in June, and now we found out today that her younger sister (33 years old) has breast cancer. Tough times.

    Sorry to hear the news. Our prayers go out to your and your family. Recently I have tried to reconnect with old high school friends. Some I haven't seen in 30 years. One person I wanted to reconnect with was the girl I lived next door to in high school. I found out about 2 weeks ago that she died in 2002 from Cancer. It was caught too late. She only lasted 8 months after she was diagnosed. Stay close to your family.

    Sorry brother. Prayers for your family. Seems genetics may play a big part. Stay vigilant. Good luck and condolences for the passed family members.

    Just said a prayer for your wife's sister. I hope it was caught early enough.

    Thanks to all. She told my wife she has been symptomatic for a year and just hasn't told anyone or done anything. I don't know if it was denial, fear, or what. That doesn't bode well for catching it early. She has a PET scan and appointment with an oncologist next, so we'll know more then. My wife is a nurse, and she finally told her about it a few weeks ago, and she's the one that convinced her to go to someone. I wish she would have said something to her when it first came up.
